SCIENCE WEEK 1ST & 2ND CLASS

In first and second class we were learning about Heat. We talked about natural and man-made heat sources. We talked about how heat is measured. We investigated how a thermometer works by measuring the temperature inside and outside as well as putting a thermometer in hot and cold water. We then recorded the results in our copies.

Latest Art Work

We had a really interesting art lesson recently. Firstly we took a head shot photo of each other, and printed them off in black & white on A3 paper. We cut the photo vertically in half. For our art symmetry design we then had to recreate our oposite head shots. The results were brilliant although we did have a good giggle at some of our faces. Great lesson to do and great fun.

1916 Project Work

All of us in 3rd & 4th class are delighted that our 1916 project work was so succesful and was a great display for all to enjoy duing our 1916 celebration day recently. A great deal of hard work by the whole class was needed to research and inform our school peers of the events during that historic time. We made paper mache heads to represent all the signatories which was time consuming but worth the effort as they looked fantastic and added a new dimention to just looking at pictures. The project was great fun to do and we are proud to show off our hard work.

Paper Mache Letters

We recently completed making our name letters for our art class. They took several sessions to complete as we made them out of paper mache. It was a new way for us try something different in art class. We were pleased with the results once they were all painted and ready to display..
